There are many different lasers to choose from, but it can sometimes be tough to decide which one is the best option for your skin concerns. If you’re experiencing wrinkles, acne scars, sagging skin, and more, then a full-field laser resurfacing treatment might be the laser treatment that you need. A full-field laser resurfacing treatment at Synergy Face + Body stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing process, producing new, healthy skin tissue for a more radiant complexion.
What Technology Does It Use?
Full-field laser resurfacing uses the Contour TRL™ system made by Sciton®. This device is effective as it is designed to accommodate each patient’s specific needs. The Contour TRL™ uses an erbium:YAG laser to vaporize tissue without doing damage to the surrounding areas. The ideal candidates for laser resurfacing are individuals who experience hard-to-treat wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, acne scars, sun spots, and actinic keratoses. Contour TRL™ tightens the skin around the eyes, improves skin tone and texture, and stimulates collagen production to reveal a smooth and revitalized facial appearance.
How Can I Prepare For My Treatment?
It is important that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Hughes so that you can discuss your concerns and goals with him. Once he has determined that you are ready for your full-field laser resurfacing treatment, you must make sure to follow all pre-treatment requirements to ensure a safe and successful experience. The professionals at Synergy Face + Body will provide you with your pre-treatment instructions, but here are a few things to keep in mind as you prepare:
Avoid medications and supplements that thin your blood (ibuprofen, Aspirin, and fish oil)
Products containing retinol should not be used for at least 24 hours before going in for your treatment
Stop the use of tobacco products and alcohol two weeks before treatment as they can delay the healing process
Let your provider know if you are prone to cold sores/fever blisters so they can prescribe an antibiotic that will help prevent infection that can sometimes be provoked by the laser treatments
When Will I Notice My Results?
Patients will notice improved skin tone and texture after one session. The new layer of skin will take about two to four weeks to reveal itself fully. Over the next few months, natural collagen production will increase, and a new, revitalized, and radiant complexion will shine through.
